After leaving Ruidoso N.M. we headed for EL Paso Texas. On the way we passed White Sand N.M. From a distance you could see the white up against the mountains it looked like snow. The visitor center is right off the highway so we pulled in. This a National Park and it is well worth seeing.
I have added a link where you can go to their web sight, http://https://plus.google.com/111681012978546802591/about?gl=US&hl=en-US&ved=0CA4Q2QY&sa=X&ei=rr-ZU6L-EI–gQTz1oCQBA
After going through the park we headed on towards El Paso. We made it to the motel and relaxed for a little bit then Charlotte called her cousin and we met her at a Mexican Restaurant not far from the Motel. It was very good and it was real Mexican food unlike the Tex Mex we get back home.
